Metro Media Productions INC.

It has been a decade since the advent of the Hashtag , and an endless list of application providers and digital creators have competed since then to boom the social media market into the marketing behemoth that it is today.

Now, more than 80 million photos are shared daily, and using social media as a business building tool has never been more crucial than it is now. By utilizing web campaign statistics, lower third overlays, event URL pages, and event “call to action” graphics, we modernize your social media engagement and keep you connected with your audience members. Funding for Social Media projection screens or LED Walls is easy to acquire with sponsorship from event vendors and advertisers.

In the Event Management world, Social Media displays are now a valuable asset to engage your audience, and keep your attendees informed of current happenings . We employ several options that allow you to artfully integrate these tools with your existing live event support to create an experience-driven method to deliver your message .

Functionality and pricing varies, and the capacities of each solution constantly evolve as each provider vies to posture themselves as the best turnkey platform for the dollar.

The following is a brief rundown of three solutions we have used, including their strengths and pitfalls:
1.We will start with the best “free” option we have used to date:

Advantages: Free (Limited functionality)

Shortcomings: Instagram and Twitter Support Only,

  • Hashslider is an image aggregator that pulls from Instagram, and Twitter.

  • You have the ablity to moderate your feed, and take a full scale slideshow to your event screens.

  • By adding Hashtags “#” (Free) and FollowTags “@” (paid service only) you can compile your event photos and tweets together creating a virtual meetingplace for your audience to assemble their memories.

  • Keep in mind that in order for HashSlider to work, the accounts displayed must be made “public”.

  • Paid options will allow a larger pool of posts to be compiled, as well as options to disable the branding.

  • Subscription Costs range from $4 - $300, more details can be found at (Similar:
